Matt McKevitt is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who provides teletherapy in New Jersey and New York. He works with individuals across the lifespan, with a focus on adults and young adults who are seeking to create change in their lives. Many of his clients bring in emotional pain due to overwhelming symptoms of anxiety and depression, inability to manage stress or perfectionism in their work or personal lives, or they are struggling to cope with a life transition such as a new career or breakup.
Matt McKevitt prominently uses Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as his treatment approach. Matt helps his clients develop coping skills to manage emotions that are interfering with their day-to-day lives. Simultaneously, he helps his clients explore their underlying thoughts to help create an understanding of why these emotions exist and how they can be overcome.
Matt McKevitt's practice is exclusively teletherapy for people in New Jersey and New York. Matt chose a virtual practice because it allows for flexibility in scheduling to accommodate his client's busy lives. He believes that the accessibility of teletherapy is helpful in eliminating barriers that prevent people from receiving the help they desire.
